Absolutely beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you, Pat Kerrigan, for our wonderful two-week stay in Hawaii on the Big Island. We arrived late in the evening in the dark, but we awoke to the most beautiful scenery when we walked out on the lanai! The birds provided the music for our stay as well! The pool was used only a few times, but was great in the late afternoons when the sun was at it's hottest. Lots of fun to take a private dip in the pool! I wish we could have used the slide. Kids would really enjoy that if it were up and running.

The kitchen was well stocked with all the equipment we needed to prepare our many breakfasts there. We had a bit of a problem with the dishwasher when we first ran it, but Pat sent out her handyman and soon we had a new dishwasher, which was great as there were nine of us to do dishes for at one point.

There were plenty of linens and towels, and a washer and dryer to help out, too. I don't understand the complaints about the stove and oven in other reviews, as these seemed quite new when we were there, and worked wonderfully. I would have loved to take home the refrigerator/freezer. My family members remarked how they liked the extra drawer for beverages. Ice maker was a little slow when we would empty it for the cooler for a day at the beach, but normally it worked well for our mai tai's.

I wasn't sure of what we would find for bathrooms when we got there as there were no pictures to see, but the master bath was very nice with two sinks, an open shower, and jetted tub. There was another half-bath on the upper level, and two large bathrooms for the three downstairs bedrooms. Very adequate! Oh, yes! And the beds were awesome! The mattresses were so comfortable!

We were surprised to say the least by the geckos. They are friendly little creatures and nothing to be scared of, but we soon found out that we had to clean up after ourselves after every meal or they would soon be looking around for any little scraps we would leave around.

On the last day of our stay we found out that our flight was cancelled because of a snowstorm on our route home. Pat most generously offered an extra night's stay free of charge so that we wouldn't have to find other arrangements. This allowed us another day to spend at the beach, where we actually spotted dolphins and turtles close to the shore. Thank you again, Pat, for sharing your beautiful home with us. We recommend the Palm House to anyone with family because of all the space. Wonderful

Great House... Freezing cold pool... Hard to get check in information

  • 3 of 5

The great: This house is absolutely gorgeous! We were 4 couples that took a valentines weekend trip to Big Island. This was a perfect house for us. There was plenty of room for all of us with beautiful views.

The not so great: the pool was not heated so it was like freezing lake water. We tried to get in but it wasn't pleasant. There's no hot tub.

The bad: The owner didn't give us the check in information until the day of at 11:00am. I called multiple times and her voicemail was full so I couldn't leave a message. I left multiple messages via email and on the vrbo site. She finally called back the morning of check in while we were on our flight to big island. This started off our trip pretty stressful.

Perfect location, tranquil, and lovely.

  • 5 of 5

This home was incredibly lovely! The rooms are all painted with gorgeous tropical colors, inviting you to relax and just enjoy the beauty. The bedrooms' white curtains float softly in the breeze that wafts in through vented windows. There are even gentle wind chimes making a peaceful background sound. The grounds were equally wonderful and spacious, with lush foliage. The house is a good distance away from any neighbors, providing a nice sense of privacy. The distance also gave the house a perfect climate, just far enough away from the ocean to still be warm, but not too hot or cold, making for pleasant evenings too. An added bonus was the panoramic ocean view from the lanai.

We enjoyed the swimming pool so much! It was clean with a huge deck. The days were warm enough so that a dip in the pool was an extra bonus.

Our entire stay in Patricia's home was absolutely perfect. When my family returns, we would truly feel fortunate if we were able to stay in this serene, idyllic home again. Thank you Pat for making our time on the big island so special.

Very good rental for 4 adult couples

  • 4 of 5

The property is just as described. Very nice landscaping and exterior. Pool is in good condition. It is not heated, so be aware that if you want a warmer pool, it might be a little chilly in the winter months. There are easy parking spots for 2 cars. More might require some coordination among drivers. The inside was in good shape. Everything was clean. Laundry and bathroom facilities were great. Most of our time was on the upper level with the large porch, large rooms for sitting to read and talk. The large kitchen made it possible to make our family style dinner each night and the dinner table accommodated the 8 of us. The kitchen has a most everything you would need for meal preparation. Some of the knives can be dull, but there is a guy who parks a van near the Costco who will sharpen knives if you need to sharpen one sharpened. The grills were great for cooking and the fridge accommodated all our groceries. One item that has to do with the Kona geography and not the house might be important to those that need to be in contact. The home is on the edge of AT&T and T-mobile cell service, so it wasn't uncommon for our phones to loose service in parts of the house, but regain it when we stepped out onto the second floor porch.

Much better than pictured

  • 5 of 5

We were unsure about this property at first as the pictures on here were less than perfect. We decided to take a leap-of-faith based on the good reviews and I am so glad that we did. My parents live on the island and Pat was kind enough to take time out of her day to show my parents around before we paid her the full amount.

The owners are great. They allowed my mom to bring groceries over early and cook dinner there in the house before we arrived. Bob greeted them as Pat was away working and he continued to be helpful. The following day my son locked the bedroom door and Bob came right over to try to help the boys get back into the room. Wednesday is lawn/garbage/pool day. Bob was there working and I asked him if he could help figure out what was wrong with the TV in the master bedroom. He got the pieces to fix it right up. There was another issue I told him about and he fixed it that night.

One of the rooms downstairs now has a king sized bed, a nice TV set up, a desk and the day bed in that room. My boys slept in there. The other has a queen and they did have a pack-and-play, highchair, toys, exersaucer, and various baby/little kid things. That was helpful for our 6 mo old and our kids. The other room had a queen bed and a couch, a nice TV and a little desk my daughter used for her laptop. They were not huge, but not crowded. The master had a comfy king, a nice TV, seating, a private lanai (perfect view of the sunset on this lanai). Each room has a ceiling fan and a separate plug in fan, perfect for what the temps were. The screened in porch was by far our favorite room. The pictures show one of it with the old furniture and one with the new L shaped couch. It has the L couch currently and another matching couch (no day bed) however, our oldest slept in there every night as it was cool and we spent most of our time playing board games and hanging out in here. The living room has 3 couches and a nice big TV. There are 3 lanais upstairs, two out front facing the pool and ocean and one on the back facing the back. There are a couple of neighbors but you feel very secluded having a coffee farm next door and it's at the end of a street.

The kitchen has a new fridge and stove (both not pictured) and even though the oven is a bit sad, it did work. We cooked there every night. It was VERY well equipped, I just wish they had a pizza pan. Otherwise, they have blenders, food processor, pans, pots, dishes, etc.

Thank you, Bob and Pat! We loved it!

Wedding

  • 4 of 5

This house is absolutely beautiful!!! The grounds are well manicured but the nature of the land is not obscured. The kitchen was less then adequate. The old oven with the element hanging made baking a challenge. The bedrooms were not as pictured, had to re arrange to justify grand expectations. Enjoyed our stay, hope owner will update this beautiful property!

The Palm House is in close proximity to beaches, golf and shopping but feels like it is away from it all. It is located in a small housing community with all six houses having half acre lots and swimming pools.

The property is fenced and gated and at an elevation that affords good views of the ocean and mountains. The gardens are spectacular with flowers of every kind; orchids, plumeria, hibiscus, ginger, and others. Pineapples, avocado, mango, and banana grow on the property. There is a large swimming pool with a sunning deck. The views are great, 180 degree view of the ocean. The property is reminiscent of an 'Old Hawaii plantation' with all the modern conveniences
